I am not having much fun with my computer today... and it is not playing nicely at all. I wanted to show you some more Christmas presents and decorations I've been able to finish this month, and it's working soooooo slowly!
Firstly, these are paper-pieced santas that I found the directions for last Christmas. I loved them so much, and seeing as I gave away all the ones I made last time, I've made another 9! I know, it's a strange number to make, but that's how many I ended up with! You will find the instructions here!
I've also made another Melly and Me dolphin for a new baby in our family. Love this pattern and I love them made in the Amy Butler fabric range.
I wanted a fold up shopping bag to take on a shopping day with the girls and found this free pattern.
I've changed it slightly... I put the outside flap up the other way on the bag, so it can also be a pocket when the bag is unfolded. I also made the pocket with 2 pieces of fabric and omitted the piping edge that was around the entire pocket.
I also made this little purse for Amanda. She sent me some gorgeous little stitcheries that she has done and said I could do "something" with them. I love this little zippered purse pattern, I've used it a few times now, and it is very versatile.
Amanda sent me some fabrics and I've made them up for her into a U-shaped pillow for her heat pack and a cover for her laptop. Love the fabrics she chose!These are the stitcheries she sent me. Aren't they gorgeous! The stitching is so tiny and perfect.
